Why Facebook’s approach to misinformation ultimately fails

Why Facebook’s approach to misinformation ultimately fails

my notes ( ? )

Facebook needs to engage its users in more substantive acts of participation. ... mistakenly assumes that locally respected fact-checking NGOs can supply the trust Facebook itself is lacking. But NGOs lack standing... In a liberal democracy, NGOs can legitimately elevate arguments and offer counterarguments to government positions... we assume arguments will be tested publicly... NGOs have not gone through any process that could possibly provide the legitimacy to limit the arguments available for public debate...
It needs to limit Facebook Inc. to selling ads, and delegate decision-making power regarding all other matters onto a set of institutions...involve its +2 billion members in debate, elections and decision-making... he has a chance to take his promise to build community seriously. And it could be a community of a size and complexity the world has never seen.
